Prayer: Help us, God, to see you every day. Amen.
Reading: 1 Corinthians 15:1-11 (Click to read text)
Stop and GROW: After reading the text, discuss/ponder the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America's Book of Faith questions, which are part of Camp Mount Luther's GROW Time with campers.
QUESTION 1: What scares, confuses, challenges, or doesn’t make sense to me in this text?
QUESTION 2: What delights me in this text or is my favorite part of the story?
QUESTION 3: What stories or memories does this text stir in me?
QUESTION 4: What is God up to in this text?
Reflection: At camp, we ask our campers often, “Where have you seen God today?” Their answers vary but most frequently they see God in the helping hand of a fellow camper or staff member, in the beauty of creation, or in how we treat one another at camp. We try to get them to be on the lookout for God in their everyday lives.
Paul is reminding us of that in our Bible text for today. He reminds us that our risen Jesus still appears to us. We should be on the lookout daily for Jesus meeting us where we are. Through Jesus, we see God. Where have you seen God today?
